Perfect and most charming hosts! We had a wonderful stay at Teresa and Denis' house. They do wonderful Irish breakfast or whatever suits you. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable, with even hot blankets...The rural location is very quiet, 5 minutes by foot from the coast. It is very well located to explore North, West or South Connemara. Nice restaurants around 5 minutes by car and very good advices from the hosts. We highly recommend! SSSSS

Very nice B&B. The room, the house, was perfect. Very good breakfast and Teresa and her husband were very nice. They introduced us to the other guests, gave us directions and recommendations to explore, information about golf courses, etc.. really kind. We've been in several B&B this summer and this is the best we've been in. Thanks!!SSSSS

Nuestra estancia en Karaun House fue estupenda. Casa limpia y preciosa con un bonito jardín.
Todo estuvo perfecto, tal y como a uno le gusta: silencio para dormir, una buena ducha, y unos caseros amables y con ganas de ayudar. Y buenos conversadores. Está bien ubicada para nuestro viaje cerca de Galway y de Cliffs of Moher.
Nuestra habitación triple era muy cómoda con unas bonitas vistas al jardín. Nuestra amable casera, Teresa cuidó de nosotros muy bien con un estupendo desayuno irlandés: bacon, huevos, tomate, pan recién hecho, mermeladas, zumos, cereales para los niños…
Lo recomiendo. Probadlo!
Gracias Teresa y Denis por hacer que nuestra estancia fuese tan agradable.

We had a lovely stay in Karaun House.
Beautiful and clean house and beautiful garden.
All was ok, what you would hope: quiet sleep, great shower, great breakfast, kind and helpful host and hostess. And talkative!
The location was nice for us in our trek between Galway and the Cliffs of Moher. Our triple room was very comfortable, with views across the lovely front garden. Our charming hostess Teresa looked after us very well, with a very good Irish breakfast: bacon eggs, tomato, homemade bread, marmalade, juice, cereals for my children…
I recommend it! Try it!
Thank you Teresa and Dennis for making our stay so enjoyable.

We stayed here for our first night in Ireland and we could not have picked a better B&B! Everything with the room was perfect and clean, the internet worked well important for us as we needed driving directions for the next day!, it was close to the Cliffs of Mohr and within walking distance of an amazing seafood restaurant.
The breakfast that Teresa cooked was hearty and delicious, I wish we could have stayed more than one night! A huge thank you to both Teresa and Denny for making our introduction to Ireland a most amazing one! SSSSS

We'd no car therefore a bit of walking to town bus stop, about 15mins. If with car it would ideal!
Teresa & Denny offered us a ride ~ arrival and departure. Really appreciated. Will come back again to your B&B ;
Teresa showed us place to eat and explore around the village. I love the village ~ beautiful and rivers too! Not to forget the "oysters" - superb! Must eat!
Will visit Clarinbridge again in future with husband ~ drive ; SSSSS

We had a lovely stay here. We walked just a minute or two down the road to the sea that evening to walk the shoreline, she recommended a wonderful restaurant within a half mile of her home and breakfast was a treat next to her beautiful garden. All was what you would hope:quiet sleep, great shower, great breakfast, kind and helpful host and hostess. The location was nice for us in our trek between downtown Galway and the Cliffs of Mohr/Burren. SSSSS
